During my three-night stay, I had a very positive experience at Flamingó Wellness Hotel and would recommend it without hesitation. This hotel is a world apart from some of the "retro," communist-era hotels that still dot Lake Balaton. My room, which included a small balcony, was spacious and had basic, but functional furniture. The bathroom was surprisingly large and nicely updated. I was perhaps most impressed with the food served during both breakfast and dinner; both were included in the price of the room. The quality of both buffet meals far exceeded what you would expect from most four star all-inclusive resorts, and included a nice selection of cheeses during dinner-time, as well as a good mix of Hungarian and foreign dishes.
Flamingó's indoors and outdoors recreational facilities were impressive. They have a pleasant, private sandy beach, which wasn't overcrowded, as well as an outdoors pool (mainly for children), a decent beach bar and a good selection of thermal pools and saunas in the indoors spa. In contrast to many resorts, as a solo traveler I never felt accosted by rowdy children and the hotel's staff didn't treat guests as though they were numbers or items on an assembly line. Both the reception staff, as well as those during breakfast and lunch, were friendly and helpful.
Most of the guests were middle-class Hungarian families with young children, combined with older German couples, who were also fairly numerous. Overall, I spent a relaxing three-days on the beach, swimming in Lake Balaton, trying out the thermal water and, to top it off, I got a pretty decent massage in the spa. When I'm next in Budapest and need a break from the city, I would not hesitate going back to Flamingó.
